LOOKS BAD FOR LABOR Shafts Being Closed Down and Men Laid Off in thd Lead Belt I For somo runsou not clear to the outsider tho lead companies of this county are Its ing off hand ami stop ping woik in smnc of their slmfis. Wo are iuliniiieil (hat seven shafts bavo already been closed and about 000 men laid i ff, Ai ihis season of the year, with winter close at hand, the outlook is not cheerful to the miners or tit her employes who have been laid off. The companies of coutsu are nut giving out any information, but peo ple will talk ami surmise, Some think the stringency of thu money market in the linaucial centers and the high rate of interest that is lieing offered for money has In do with the acliuu of the lead interests in a measure; that they may be cuilaiiiug devolopmcul woik until the temporary stringency, caused probably hy thu moving of crops, has passed. Others think that it is bccnUM) ol thu decline in tho prico of lead, which is quoted this week in the St. Louis maikel at i.ij, whereas ii has for some time heretofote beau ranging neat li. To curtail cxpeuaes for Ihc picscnl and to gel tin: uiiiiils of the miners luto a iiamo of thought that w ill cause them to submit to a cut in wages in the near futurohas beon sug gested as one object the compares have in view in laying off bauds at ibis time. Whether suy or all ol these sutinises have anything to do with it, the act ion has caused considerable de pression ( feeling iu tho lead bolt among thu niiMi tueu ni well as Ihc mine laborers. U is one of thu boasts of ih protective- tariff ties that the tiiin'f keep up the prico of lead and the wages ol I In' millets, and if Ihis wcie Hue lead ought slili tu bo selling nl over 6 cents. Lead was quoted in London on Wed nesday at about 4 04, only one-hundredth of a cent less than the St. Louis quotation for Missousi lead ou the same day. Tho tariff is 2 '4 cents a pound on load, but it doesn't seem to anrvo tbe purpose of keepicg up tbe prico ot that metal. Has the high prico that baa prevailed for some mouths encouraged an over-production? If there were no tariff on lead would it bo selling hero to-day for less than it is selling in London?
